The Lake Havasu City Maintenance Services Division is chip sealing throughout the City beginning Monday, April 23, for approximately four weeks, as part of the annual pavement preservation program. This project consists of placing approximately 800,000 square yards of polymer-modified chip seal surface on approximately 40 miles of streets and parking lots in various portions of the city. The chip sealing process is an efficient and cost effective method of prolonging the useable service life of asphalt pavement.

Residents and businesses located along streets being surfaced will receive a detailed door hanger notice approximately five days in advance of the construction and again 24 hours prior to the work. The City asks that residents refrain from parking on the streets and to remove all vehicles from the streets during the time that they are scheduled to be sealed, and to avoid releasing water into the street during this time.

The Lake Havasu City Maintenance Services Division is asking for resident’s patience and cooperation during the street sealing process.  Speed limit reductions will be in force through the work areas.  Motorists traveling on a street being chip sealed can expect delays due to street sealing activities and possible flagging to direct traffic flow. Traffic cones, arrows, and other devices will delineate travel lanes.  Motorists can expect some lane and access restrictions and it is recommended that motorists use alternate routes whenever possible.

As always, the public is requested to use caution and obey all traffic signs when traveling through construction zones.  To view a map of the roadways scheduled for the proposed work, go to the Lake Havasu City website front page at www.lhcaz.gov or use Quick Links to Operations/Streets.
